Once again you make these wierd assumptions obviously reflecting your expierence. What is that Seattle place, must be some kind of Wild West for DBA'a. Like incompetent guys in stetsons writing buggy scripts and when they hear "test" or "change control" or "document" just shooting without being introduced. All your assumptions may apply to your or your student's scripts but not the wider world.

"As good a job" is just funny considering that since v1.0 up to and including 9.2 quality of OEM monitoring consistently fell into "almost non-existent" to "not quite reliable" range. 10g is better, still not so bright, e.g. about clusters and multiply inventories.

That's a relief. "One of" would really be a step down for me :)

Anyway, it was nice to socialise here in "life style"-type thread but it's Friday and I bow you a good-bye. If you still eager to defend your overstatement I suggest you replay to Hpuxrac. After all he writes much better English and might be able to make you change your mind. But until it happens, please remember, _not_a_line of monitoring script in _any_ environment. It's a deal! :)
